We’re supporting the University of Leicester with mental health and wellbeing training as well as reflective practice programs

What we did...

Reflective practice

We delivered trainer led reflective practice sessions to learn from their own real world experiences

Online learning

We created bespoke eLearning programs tailored around their needs 

MH First aid

We trained staff in Higher Education Mental Health First Aid to provide initial support to those who need it

bespoke courses

We developed and delivered live trainer led virtual sessions around mental health, wellbeing and resilience 

We have been supporting University of Leicester since 2019. 

As well as supporting the needs of students, the university wanted to ensure staff were not forgotten.  We created and delivered tailored face to face training and online programs, as well as Higher Education Mental Health First Aid to provide initial support to those who need it.  

We are currently delivering trainer-led reflective practice sessions to help staff reflect and learn from their experiences. In the sessions we explore vicarious or secondary trauma, compassion fatigue and the importance of self care.

Just done your Mental Health Awareness and Positive Wellbeing course. I thought it was an excellent package - great pitch, information and tone. A great product that I found really useful.

" I found your online Mental Health Awareness and Positive Wellbeing course really engaging. The content is presented in a very approachable way. To be honest I didn’t have high expectations of an online course about such an (inter) personal topic. But it’s actually an advantage because as a participant you can be honest to yourself and not judged by others in the room, so online might just be the right format. Thank you!

Terry was an excellent trainer and we came away with a much clearer picture of how mental health issues affect people at work. The training was engaging, accessible, informative, important and mind-broadening. Most of all, the training helped to dispel the stigma and fear of mental health - giving delegates the confidence to recognise some of the symptoms and a desire to do what we can to help people through periods of mental ill-health.
